Beautiful model in an eye-catching scheme! I built one like this when I was younger and built jet model kits.

If I was ever going to start collecting die-cast jets(
No! No! No!), this one would be a "must have" model I would get.

Yes, the red trim really sets the plane off. I remember the movie...saw it on HBO when I was a kid. It was actually a good movie...
